Eagle's Mere
EAGLE'S MERE Air and Auto Museum, LaPort, PA

Folks, this is a FANTASTIC private airplane and automobile museum - perhaps one of the finest PRIVATE museums in the USA....

Best part, it is ON the airfield and you are RIGHT THERE upon landing on a mountaintop plateau in northern PA.

The field is in GREAT condition - try to land UPHILL on 23 or 24 when you arrive - this is helpful and recommended. They have BOTH a turf and hardened runway, so you pick!

We visited on 23 Aug 15 and the cost was $8 for BOTH museums, air and auto - both were WELL WORTH IT. We went as a two-ship formation - others flew in as well, but most seem to drive there.

Bring your own food and drinks - I saw none for sale, but the place is immaculate and clean! Volunteers are very helpful.

Go to the web site and comply with the legal form to get permission to land - this is important.

Once there, you are free to roam and explore this fantastic place. Better yet, try to stay a week or weekend at the resort!

Mike Marra, Keystone Flight

Here is how the museum advertises itself:

Visit Eagles Mere Air & Auto Museums, Merritt Field, Route 42 between Eagles Mere and Laporte.

Vintage biplanes starting in 1917 actively flown,
many were of the type flown by the early aviation pioneers,
including many of the famous early female pilots.
